Fourth And Fifth Grade Spelling Bee

Fourth And Fifth Grade Spelling Bee

On Friday, January 22, 2021, we held our Scripps/Miami Herald 4th and 5th-grade Spelling Bee. The students were well-prepared and excited to show their spelling expertise. After 18 rounds and 167 words of intense competition, Klorey White won the spelling bee. Klorey will go on to represent Westminster Academy in the Miami Herald/Scripps National Spelling Bee for Broward County in March. Words that were spelled correctly and led to the final round were: “Scandinavia,” “laboratory,” and “indecipherable.”

Congratulations to the winners and those who qualified to participate:

  • First Place: Klorey White (5th Grade)
  • Second Place: Jade Engen-Ruiz (5th Grade)
  • Third Place: Isabella Bruce (5th Grade)
